Nice to see someone else from Dorset. Is the hardware copper rivets? Looks nice. great design. Le prevo sell buckles like that - good to see what they look like on a belt.

That belt looks amazing, did you hand carve all those Celtic knots?
One aspect did jump out at me though, the stitch line near the buckle. I have seen more than a few straps and belts fail at the location of stitches across them like this. I could compare it to the perforations on a sheet of postage stamps.

They have a similar desien in the Leather Crafters magazine, vol. 27 Jan/Feb 2017. They used the Left and Right L-Leg stamp from the Pro-Series. I was trying to find the stamps on the internet, with no luck.Can you tell me what stamp you used and where can I purchase it?  By the way I love your belt.

I don't think Bones was so much talking about the ending of the stitch with the backstitch as he was talking about going across the leather. Punching 9 or 10 holes in the leather to stitch weakens the leather considerably and will make it a potential fail point in the future.

Sharkeyfinn,  Looks great!  Just curious about the back side of where you turned the leather over to affix the buckle.  How did you manage that?
